Country kitchen with shaker cabinets, butcher block island and black granite countertops

In the picture above, the white shaker cabinets match the range surround and the base of the butcher block kitchen island in the space. The black granite countertops of the main counters, the varnished wooden floorboards, and tan-colored walls are nice contrasts to the lightness of the white in the room. The design also uses usually unused vertical space by employing a hanging type of storage for the kitchen’s pots and pans.

Country Kitchens Designs

Modern country design kitchen with grey pendants

Country Kitchen designs often use white for its main walls and cabinets, with warm wood accents for some surfaces and cabinets. It also may use a particular stone finish for countertops and a nice, quaint tile for its backsplash.

Kitchen islands These islands come in different shapes and sizes but mostly serve as a breakfast nook. Sometimes, it is irregularly shaped to allow for more flexibility, and sometimes, it is two-tiered to allow for both dining and cooking tasks.

Butcherblock Countertops These wood countertops come in thin strips of wood running linearly over a long surface. The butcherblock wood finish gives a rustic country vibe, similar to those in older barnhouses. Modern touches such as laminate paneling or space for electrical outlets may be integrated into the design.

Accent Lights Usually hanging over the kitchen island, these lights are usually rustic in style. Other country kitchens might try something lighter in a glass body to go for a more Contemporary barn look

Handcrafted furniture Barstools for island benches usually combine dark wood and leather upholstery or black wrought iron and reclaimed wood. Either way, they provide a rustic country look mixed with old-town comfort.

Backsplash The backsplash in most kitchens uses a quaint country-style tile in small cuts. A linear border usually bounds the backsplash over the stove top and is then laid out in a diagonal fashion. The tile may also differ completely from the rest of the backsplash, serving as an accent.

Exaggerated range hood Country style kitchens often exaggerate the space above their rangehood. Designers use completely different materials for the range hood covers, such as reclaimed wood, rusted brass, or bronze.

Other kitchens are designed such that the architrave before the rangehood features paneling and color similar to the hanging cabinets but features intricate fretwork on the arched detail.

Wood floors A good contrast to the typically white paneled cabinets, wood floors in warm colors are good to use in country-style kitchens, especially because of the warmth they bring to the design. These wood floors can be laid out in planks, strips, or parquet tiles. An unvarnished natural look is best suited for rustic country kitchens.

Pot hangers A clear expression of old barnyard-style utility, these pot hangers are hung from the ceiling and are usually made of wrought iron or cast iron. Heavy pots and pans are hung here, and the setup of hanging materials can also influence the aesthetic of the layout.

Beadboard and exposed beam ceilings Sometimes, even in high-ceiling cathedral roofs, exposed beams in reclaimed wood are a great way to frame beadboard ceilings.

Besides the height of cathedral ceilings being similar to the high-roofed barn houses in the country, the natural treatment of the wood and the quaint lines and nails of the beadboard ceiling also call back to a simpler construction style. Beams can even be constructed to have a truss-like appearance.

Clerestory windows Along with high cathedral ceilings are clerestory windows, openings way above the top of the kitchen’s hanging cabinets. These horizontal windows bring in light and do away with stale, warm air.

Glass-paneled cabinets For lower-height ceilings, an imitation of these clerestory windows is the glass-paneled hanging cabinets or glass-paneled mini-cabinets above the main hanging cabinet storage units.

Usually, white mullions with a pane of glass in between serve as both storage and display, especially since a small pinlight is placed inside illuminating layers of glass shelves and acts as a sort of “window” for the country-style kitchen.

This country kitchen has a base of white in its color palette – the walls, flat panel cabinets, and drawers. An array of different colors is used in the room as well.

Warm maple wood countertops are coupled with the polished-white solid surface counter for the main sink area. The sink is a farmhouse style that goes with the whole cabin feel of the area. On top of the range and kitchen island, we have brass pipes used as a hanging storage space for the pots and pans.
